Destiny 2 Shadowkeep: All Vex Offensive Rewards

destiny 2 shadowkeep vex incursions

Vex Offensive is a new mode coming to Destiny 2 as part of the Season of the Undying. The specifics of the mode are currently unknown, but since the launch of the Shadowkeep expansion, the weapons that players can earn in Vex Offensive have been added to the game's database. This allows players to see the Vex Offensive rewards and a hint as to how they can get them. More answers should be revealed very soon, as Vex Offensive is set to show up in the game on October 5th, likely after the Garden of Salvation raid is beaten for the first time.

While the full loot pool is not quite known yet—it's assumed that the Substitutional Alloy armor sets that are part of the season pass, for example, will also drop in Vex Offensive—but what is clear is that there are four weapons that are completely exclusive to Vex Offensive. If players want these weapons, the only way to get them will be tied to the Vex Offensive activity.

From the Destiny 2 database it appears that to get these weapons, they will not just simply drop from Vex Offensive. Instead, there are two quest items associated with each of these weapons. The first is called Data Input, which tasks players with defeating Vex anywhere in the game to "program the simulation pattern." Then there's Execute Function, which reads "Breach the Black Garden and stall the Vex Offensive. Disrupt their incursion networks, destroy the boss, and claim the spoils." It appears that players may be able to pick up a Data Input for the particular weapon they want, kind of how weapon frames worked in Black Armory. Then, charge it by killing Vex, and then when they play Vex Offensive, they will be able to control which exact weapon will drop, sort of like The Reckoning or the Menagerie's Chalice. Again, this is all speculation until the mode actually appears in the game.

Regardless of how exactly they are earned, these four weapons are specifically tied to Vex Offensive:

Optative Hand Cannon

The Optative is a Precision Frame 180 RPM hand cannon, a class of hand cannon that is very popular on consoles, in particular. It is the same archetype as Service Revolver, Trust, and the original Luna's Howl/Not Forgotten. Its stats are actually almost nearly identical to Service Revolver, which is a popular hand cannon in PvP on consoles.

Column 3 Perks

  • Grave Robber
  • Rapid Hit
  • Under Pressure
  • Outlaw
  • Underdog
  • Fourth Time's the Charm

Column 4 Perks

  • Zen Moment
  • Opening Shot
  • Kill Clip
  • Shield Disorient
  • Mulligan
  • Demolitionist

Adhortative Pulse Rifle

Adhortative is an Adaptive Frame 390 pulse rifle, the same archetype as Bygones and Inaugural Address. Its main perks in the third and fourth columns are:

Column 3 Perks

  • Feeding Frenzy
  • Hip-Fire Grip
  • Genesis
  • Field Prep
  • Firmly Planted
  • Underdog

Column 4 Perks

  • Dragonfly
  • Rampage
  • High-Impact Reserves
  • Headseeker
  • Multikill Clip
  • Rangefinder

Imperative Scout Rifle

The Imperative scout rifle is a High-Impact Frame, which is one of the slower firing and harder-hitting scout rifles. While scout rifles have not been very popular in Destiny 2, the changeup of weapon damage that came with Shadowkeep will likely shake up the meta a bit, so players will have to see how viable this type of scout rifle is as the Season of the Undying progresses.

Column 3 Perks

  • No Distractions
  • Triple Tap
  • Eye of the Storm
  • Subsistence
  • Field Prep
  • Outlaw

Column 4 Perks

  • Explosive Payload
  • Rampage
  • Multikill Clip
  • Rangefinder
  • Snapshot Sights
  • Opening Shot

Subjunctive Submachine Gun

Lastly, Subjunctive is a 900 RPM Lightweight Frame submachine gun. Its perks are:

Column 3 Perks

  • Hip-Fire Grip
  • Pulse Monitor
  • Outlaw
  • Quick Draw
  • Threat Detector
  • Genesis

Column 4 Perks

  • Surrounded
  • Shield Disorient
  • Swashbuckler
  • Multikill Clip
  • Rampage
  • High-Impact Reserves.

On the roadmap for Shadowkeep and Season of the Undying, it lists Vex Offensive as going live on October 5, which could happen alongside or after the World First completion of the Garden of Salvation raid.

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version also in development.
